It’s been a really good day today, even if it wasn’t quite the start to NaNoWriMo that I wanted!
I was so keen to get writing that I stayed up past midnight last night to start November with a couple of paragraphs, and then managed to get some more done before I went to Slimming World this morning. I lost half a pound this week, taking me back into target range (I swear staying in range is harder than getting to target in the first place!), and was also delighted when my group voted me their Miss Slinky 2018! I got some lovely flowers and a certificate. I felt a bit embarrassed though as it’s the third award I’ve won this year – next year I’ll be happy for someone else to have a chance!
When I got home, I found a client had sent me some urgent work to do, so I got that done and then managed to squeeze in another hour of writing before I had to go to Pilates. After Pilates (and a detour to the pub to meet Geth), I was finally able to get into my writing properly, and have just finished for the day. I’ve managed nearly 4,000 words on my NaNo novel today, which puts me well on track for my goal this month (my aim is not just to get the standard 50,000 words for the month but also finish the draft, which I’m expecting to take closer to 80,000 words). Not bad for a mostly-interrupted day! Looking forward to a more solid day of writing tomorrow.
